Some early October skiers are having fun! The October 9 storm dropped about 14 inches at Great Divide. If you plan to climb and ski you will hit a few things, but still a lot of fun. Bears are very active here right now, so bring your bear spray, travel in groups and make some noise. More snow Saturday, then some warm and sunny weather next week. Snowmaking campaign set to start around October 23rd. Whenever the temperature drops below 30 degrees, we'll be gunning for a November 18 opening. We have about 600 more Season PassHolders than is customary this time of year. Don't spend your first ski day standing in long lines for Season Pass pictures or Season Equipment leases.
